Lake Placid Winter

Winter in Lake Placid is a spectacle to see. The way snow envelops coniferous trees and dusts the Adirondack Mountains looks like a scene from a movie. Embark on a plethora of outdoor activities or cuddle up by the toasty fire. Regardless of what outings you’ve planned for your cozy winter getaway to our Lake Placid hotel, Whiteface Lodge, you’ll want to make a packing list and check it twice. Avoid getting to your destination, realizing you left something vital at home, and wasting precious vacation time shopping for what you’ve forgotten. Check out our ultimate packing list for your winter stay at our Adirondack resort.    

Everything You Need for a Cozy Winter in Lake Placid  

While it’s safe to say most people don’t fancy cooler weather, there’s still plenty of winter fun to be had near our Lake Placid lodge. During the colder months, the daily highs tend to stay around 30-degrees, so you’ll definitely want to make sure you pack accordingly. Even if you don’t anticipate spending a majority of your time exploring the snow-covered scenery, you’re still going to want warm layers.

  • Pack a parka, especially if you’re looking forward to a snowshoeing or skiing expedition. 
  • You’ll want a pair of good-quality, waterproof boots. Thinsulate is always an excellent option for winter adventures.
  • Bring mittens and a hat made of wool or fleece.
  • Snowpants are a must for any downhill skilling escapades.
  • Layered clothing will also serve you well—long underwear, fleece leggings, thick flannels, etc. 

Our Adirondack lodge also offers an assortment of indoor amenities that you may want to explore. 

  • Pack a swimsuit for a relaxing dip in the hot top or swim laps in our heated pool. 
  • We offer fitness classes and a fitness center, so a few workout outfits may serve you well. 
  • Lastly, remember to bring comfortable clothes so that you can luxuriate in your cozy lodgings after a rejuvenating spa treatment
